April 2 – PALM SUNDAY 10:30 am In-Person and via ILC YouTube
On Palm Sunday we celebrate the arrival of Jesus to Jerusalem. Rejoicing, we recognize Jesus as the Christ, as we begin to hear the Passion story according to Matthew and celebrate communion knowing there is more to come.
April 6 – MAUNDY THURSDAY
7 pm In-Person with livestream starting at 6:55 pm via ILC YouTube
In the evening, we gather as Jesus did on that Thursday. We will have a time of ritual washing & gathering around the Word in the Passion story according to Matthew, and a Sacred Meal. Jesus gave this command as a gift, that we love one another & share in the meal to remember him as A FORETASTE OF THE FEAST TO COME. This will be followed by Stripping of the Altar, as Christ was stripped & a time of silence in the bare sanctuary. We depart in silence & continue the service on Friday.

April 8 – EASTER VIGIL 7 pm In Person and via ILC YouTube
On Easter Eve we proclaim the victory of Christ even in the midst of the shadows of the night. The liturgy of Holy Chaos & Hilarity begins as we strike the first fire of Easter. We move from the firepit in the world (at Lunchbox Lab), led by the light of the Easter Candle into the sanctuary. There we gather around the Candle to tell stories of God’s spacious saving love, to remember our Baptism, & to celebrate the first Alleluia of Easter. Please — Include the children in this interactive service.
